India Open badminton tournament 2021 has been postponed in the wake of a sudden rise in the COVID-19 cases in New Delhi.  The tournament was scheduled to be held at the KD Jadhav Indoor Hall in New Delhi from May 11-16.

In an emergency discussion held with Badminton World Federation (BWF), Badminton Association of India (BAI) decided to postpone the upcoming Yonex-Sunrise India Open 2021.

BAI General Secretary Ajay Singhania said, considering the current challenges, BAI is left with no option but to announce the postponement of the tournament for the time being.

The BWF World Tour Super 500 tournament was classified as one of the last few qualification tournaments for the Tokyo Olympics and had attracted top players including Kenta Momota, Victor Axelsen and several other Top-10 players along with representation from 33 countries.

The 2021 edition was already scheduled to be held in a biosecure bubble with no spectators and media.
